shoot me your email: Awastegate@hotmail.com
I'm taking my ca18det clutch to match up a centerforce, at a hipo parts warehouse, so I'll know WHICH application is the same... looks pretty close to ka sohc.
Even if you decide to go act, clutchmasters, etc.. at least you'd know the application to order for.

Jamaica ? in the islands ? just came from there.

If anyone finds out can you email me because i'm fitting a T3 this week and i'm expecting 280 - 290 bhp http://www.freshalloy.com/ and my current clutch won't take it, and the AP clutch is harsh.

what part of 85 200SX turbo don't you all get
Got a CA18DET in a car right now running one........

Why '85? any '84-'88 200SX turbo clutch should work.

There were some 200SXes available with a V6 and others available with a CA18ET. I don't think a -DE was ever available back the, only SOHC.

The USM S12 came w/ the VG30E, the CA20E, or the CA18ET.

thanks for the clutch info... good price too. Centerforce DF seems to be the "love it / hate it" of clutches... dunno whassup with that. I'll take my chances http://www.freshalloy.com/

Try looking ACT clutch up on their site since you prefer - watch out for that pedal pressure tho. http://advancedclutch.com
try these guys too http://clutchspecialties.com www.nipponpower.com (http://www.nipponpower.com)

Heard good stuff about these clutches www.clutchnet.com (http://www.clutchnet.com)

so that centerforce number is what will fit on a ca18det? are there any good upgrades for ca18det's (from japan, or UK?) i really want to pick it over the sr, but the sr has mountains of parts..
